Jimmy Butler on personal responsibility and Thibs

"I'm the reason that we did not make the playoffs," he said. "I'm fine with that. I'm not happy with it, but I'm fine with it. Because it's only going to make me stronger and better.

"I wasn't consistent enough. I had good games, average games, decent games and some terrible games. I don't want to have terrible and decent games. Average games can get us over the hump. Really good ones can make us win."
Young player coming into his own as a NBA star.

Contrast this to Paxson's "responsibility.... but the injuries!" slop from his presser.



Butler on Thibs.

Quote:
"I'm happy for that guy," he said.

Was Thibodeau great or tough to play for?

"Little bit of both," Butler replied. "He knows what he's doing. He's very smart. He studies the game. And he'll do whatever it takes to win."



Ah.... winning. I remember those Thibs days fondly.

Now we're stuck in the miserable NBA middle.

As good as Jimmy is, he's going to need a team and winning NBA environment around him. (dougie mcbuckets and the hoiberg of last year ain't enough)
